The Lyrics

My idea of what the original song would be a parody of if it was a parody instead of just a style pastiche.
I was so sure I could make her stay
I thought that we'd make it all the way
Who ever knew that being in love could be so hard?
Tried being the best boyfriend I could
Thought that it would do me good
But how far I coulda gotten, it wasn't that far

Paid her bills and paid my dues
So sure that I was not gonna lose
I knew this girl was gonna love me without a doubt
I was sure that every evening she'd be calling me on my phone
And I'd be the greatest guy, I won't be alone
But I soon found she was gone
So I'm sorry to say, that's not the way that it all worked out

I'm a poor guy 'cause she told me goodbye
Single man is the name
And I'm waking up all alone every day
And every time it's the same
Look at me wishing for when she was here
Gonna miss her for the next fifty years
Now I'm laughing at my own life but I'm crying inside
'Cause my baby went and told me goodbye

Oh, my homies, they used to say
That she would never go away
Thought I wouldn't blow this one chance, this was my plan
Aw, but I never thought that she may wanna leave me
You'd know my pain now if you could just be me
And feel what it means to live life with just your own hand
And have no idea why she ran

But I'm a poor guy 'cause she told me goodbye
Single man is the name
And I'm waking up all alone every day
And every time it's the same
I would have kept her if I had just knew how
But what's the difference? It's all done for me now
But I'm dreaming of her, I can't swallow my pride
'Cause my baby went and told me goodbye

I should be there with my girl
Being the envy of all of my friends
But instead I'm here crying about her
Again and again and again and again and again and again and again

La la la la la la la la...

I should have listened when my smart father said
"Girls are just trouble, go study instead!"
But my girlfriend has vanished and the love has all died
And I'll probably live forever as a poor guy 'cause she told me goodbye
Single man is the name
And I'm waking up all alone every day
And every time it's the same
Look at me wishing for when she was here
Somebody shoot me, she left me in tears
But she said that she loved me, I guess that she lied
'Cause my baby went and told me goodbye
Yes, my baby went and told me goodbye
